For Immediate Release

WASHINGTON - Tonight, I voted to fund our troops, our seniors, and our children. The Democrats have proven once again, they will put the lives of millions of Americans, and their livelihoods, all at risk to fulfill their own political agenda. Republicans were very clear what they wanted: money for the border wall, end chain migration, end the visa lottery system. If the Democrats really cared about the Dreamers, they would have come to the negotiation table. I am disappointed that the Democrats chose to let both the Dreamers, and their constituents down.  Political games should not be played when the stakes are so high.
